  • Case History

    Police were called when a man was seen walking through a Brisbane neighborhood with a partial human skull on November 16, 2012. He told police that he found the skull in a tree while walking and the skull called out his name. He couldn't remember where the tree was and although the area was searched, no additional remains were found at the time. The man was subsequently arrested.

    After his release from jail on January 16, 2013, the man took officials to the site where the woman's remains were located - on a vacant hillside property, southwest of Bayshore Boulevard and Old County Road.
